Indiana Football: Hoosiers add grad transfer tight end from South Alabama

The Indiana football team shored up a possible weakness when they added Khameron Taylor, a graduate transfer tight end from South Alabama.

The Hoosiers picked up a nice player on Wednesday morning when graduate transfer Kham Taylor picked Indiana for his last year of eligibility.

Taylor will help the Hoosiers shore up an uncertain tight end position with the status of returning starter Peyton Hendershot still up in the air. Hendershot was suspended from the team after being arrested after the season ended and has only recently joined the team back in a probationary capacity.

Tom Allen expressed his excitement for bringing in Taylor according to a press release by the school.

“We are really excited about adding Kham to our program, head coach Tom Allen said in a release by the school. “He brings experience to the tight end room. Other than Peyton Hendershot, we have a young group that needs some depth. Kham is a big, strong blocker with untapped potential in the pass game. He has a great combination of size, length and athleticism that immediately helps us become a better football team.”

Taylor will hopefully join Hendershot making up a great 1-2 punch at the position. Hendershot was great for the Hoosiers last year, and will hopefully do the things needed to be back on the team permanently.

Taylor’s production in the receiving game hasn’t been great, but joining the Hoosiers in which they like to spread the ball around could up his catches and value to the team.

He is a big guy at 6’4″ and 270 pounds and should be valuable also in the running game as he is seen as a good run blocker.

Taylor is from Florida and Allen again proves that he can bring in players from the sunshine state to Bloomington. It will be interesting to see how much the Hoosiers use Taylor in the offense, but at the very worst he provides experience to help bridge the gap to the younger tight ends on the roster.
